Containers of Hope in San Jose, Costa Rica by Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture

Sunday, December 4th, 2011

Article source: Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture

Gabriela Calvo and Marco Peralta dreamed of living in their fantastic property 20 minutes outside of the city of San Jose, Costa Rica; where they could be with their horses and enjoy the natural landscape. They made the very bold choice of exploring with me the possibility of creating a very inexpensive house made out of disregarded shipping containers that allowed them to be dept free and live the life they always dreamed of.

Gandra School in Paredes, Portugal by Atelier Nuno Lacerda Lopes (designed using Autodesk Revit)

Saturday, December 3rd, 2011

Article source: Atelier Nuno Lacerda Lopes

This is a two-storey school center based on a modular composition organized around a central courtyard. The classrooms are configured as single modules, juxtaposed and clearly perceptible, where variations of the implementation’s orientation and the roof’s slopes determine the formal design of this schools center. This results in a fragmentation of the global volume and roofing design, which cut out a silhouette of relative informality along the complex’s development. The different orientations and roof slopes grant a playful appearance that fits the scholar theme and its environment.

Hill-Maheux Cottage in Val-des-Monts, Canada by Kariouk Associates

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Article source: Kariouk Associates

Task:

To design a small, very private, four-season cottage

Design Challenge:

In this small, weekend and vacation retreat, the clients and their daughter seek to take refuge from the world. As such, the home is introverted; but the clients also desired that the house achieve a maximum connection to its beautiful, forested, lake-side site. Last, it is important to note that this home is built as a place the clients will keep for their entire lives and then pass on to their daughter; the clients, a couple each involved in art conservation, sought a home whose design would itself be conceived as a vessel for the conservation of the family memories that will unfold here.

Pedestrian footbridge in Evry, France by DVVD

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Article source: DVVD

Due to the separation of pedestrian and vehicular traffic, bridges are particularly significant landscapes in public space in Evry. One key requirement quickly emerged: the need to prevent objects being thrown onto vehicles beneath the footbridge. At the same time as offering better user safety, we also wanted the bridge to be transparent and fun. We combined these architectural intentions and technical considerations to create a steel structure forming a volume which encompasses pedestrians.
